Takata recall I have requested since May 2015-novemebr 2017 a repair to this recall. My car was on a mountain going uphill and it stalled out and made flickering. It was towed to BMW sealership who kept the car for almost three months and could not fix. I called BMW to no resolution. The car was in motion going up a hill.

Takata recall first the passenger side airbag was recalled, after waiting over one year, it was removed and replaced. Now the driver's airbag has been recalled. We responded immediately. We have been waiting for over two years! no contact, no replacement. We continue to live in peril of the lethal deployment of the defective airbag and BMW just says wait?

Takata recall I received a letter dated July 2015 concerning the recall of the driver's side air bag. I called my local BMW on 11/24/15 and they said they put my name on the list and would call me when the replacement came in. I called again on 4/14/16 and [xxx] said she would check to make sure my name is on the list and would call me back when the parts arrived. It's been a year and a half and I have not received a call back. This is so concerning to me as this car is my main mode of transportation and I am so afraid I will have a front end collision resulting in death or dismemberment. If that should happen I or my estate will most certainly sue. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Takayuki recall a few years back, I received a recall notice for the passenger side airbag.(potentially lethal consequences if deployed). Last year, I received another recall, this time for the driver's airbag.I responded immediately and was placated with the promise of replacement. It has been eighteen months now and the dealer asks me to be patient. I recently found that it may take until 2020!!! for any replacement!!! I ask, simply would any prudent person drive my vehicle" living with the threat of death for four more years? what am I to do" I want a safe replacement at BMW's expense until my vehicle can be repaired. Yes my vehicle is 12 years old ( 60,000 miles) and yes I live in what considered a "humid" environment! help!
